TG Eakin Ltd were pleased to be Gold Sponsors of the recent British Transplant Games held in Belfast.
The Transplant Games were formed to help encourage transplant patients to regain fitness and to promote friendship and co-operation between individuals concerned with transplantation, whilst also increasing public awareness of the value of organ donation.
Now an annual event, the Games take place over 4 exciting days during which approximately 700 competitors aged between two and 80 years old (all recipients of a life-saving organ transplant) compete in sports and attend a range of events with their families.
Commenting on the event, Jeremy Eakin said “It was a privilege to sponsor the Games and support the campaign to increase the number of people on the Organ Donor Register. Many of us have family or friends who have benefited from an organ transplant and have witnessed the new opportunity for life which a transplant can bring. These games are a celebration of that gift of life.”
